cast's current/upcoming projects

I know this community isn't very active recently, but I've just been looking into what the actors are doing currently and thought I'd share my findings, though a lot of you might already know.

Nicholas Hoult has finished filming Young Ones, a dystopian drama following the life of a teenage boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who sets out to protect his family in a near-future in which water is scarce. He stars as Flem Lever, alongside McPhee, Michael Shannon and Elle Fanning. It is expected to be released in Jan, 2014 (USA). He has also finished filming X-Men: Days of Future Past (May, 2014, USA), Mad Max: Fury Road (May, 2015, USA), and adaptation of Gillian Flynn's mystery/thriller novel, Dark Places ("A woman who survived the brutal killing of her family as a child is forced to confront the events of that day by a secret society obsessed with solving notorious crimes") as Lyle, alongside Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz and Christina Hendricks. Expected to be released in September, 2014 (USA).

Upcoming films Autobahn - in which Hoult stars alongside Amber Heard as an American backpacker who gets involved with a ring of drug smugglers as their driver - and Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen - animation about the rivalry between cutlery who come to life in which Hoult voice acts alongside Gemma Arterton and Stephen Fry - are in pre-production. Set to be released in 2015.

Hoult is also rumoured to be starring in sci-fi Equals with Kristen Stewart.

Hannah Murray will reprise her role as Gilly in the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones, to air on HBO in March 2014.

Murray has also finished filming romance musical set in Glasgow, God Help The Girl - about a girl called Eve (Emily Browning) who is in hospital dealing with emotional problems and starts writing songs as a mode of therapy, which leads her to the City where she meets fellow musicians James (Olly Alexander) and Cassie (Murray) (set to be released in Jan, 2014, USA) - and Lily & Kat, a dramedy in which two best friends, Kat (Murray) and Lily (Jessica Rothe) struggle to make the best of their last few days together, savouring the city nightlife with an enigmatic artist one of them takes a liking for. Will be released at film festivals in 2014.

Joe Dempsie will reprise his role as Gendry in the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones, to air on HBO in March 2014.

Dempsie has also finished filming sci-fi thriller, Monsters: Dark Continent, following a solder who enters the infected zone of the city to find his comrade, alongside Johnny Harris and Sofia Boutella. Channel 4 announced earlier on this year that Dempsie will star as one of the four leads in upcoming historical drama, New Worlds, about a group of young idealists in the Restoration period, alongside Jamie Dornan, Alice Englert and Freya Mavor.

Mitch Hewer has, from what I can gather, a small part in upcoming comedy, Behaving Badly, with Selena Gomez, Mary-Louise Parker and Dylan McDermott. Set to be released in Sept, 2014. He has also finished filming horror Nightlight, alongside Shelby Young, Chloe Bridges and Carter Jenkins. (2014)

Dev Patel will reprise his role as Neal Sampat in the upcoming third season of drama The Newsroom, to air on HBO in 2014.

He has also finished filming thriller set in Stalin-era Soviet Union, Child 44 (2014, USA), starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke, and The Road Within (2014), a dramedy about a young man with Tourette's Syndrome who embarks on a road trip with his recently deceased mother's ashes, alongside Robert Sheehan, Zoe Kravitz, Robert Patrick and Kyra Sedgwick.

Patel is currently filming action thriller, Chappie, in which the titular character (Sharlto Copley) becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family after being kidnapped at birth, and also happens to be a robot. Patel stars as Deon, alongside Copley, Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver. It is set to be released in March, 2015 (USA). He has also been cast as the lead, Srinivasa Ramanujan, in drama, The Man Who Knew Infinity, following a young man who grows up poor in Madras, India, and gains admittance to Cambridge University during WW1, where he becomes a pioneer in mathematical theories with the guidance of his professor, G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons).

Kaya Scodelario has finished filming adaptation of the first novel in post-apocalyptic YA series, The Maze Runner, as Teresa, alongside Dylan O'Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Will Poulter. It is set to be released in September, 2014 (USA).

Scodelario has also been cast as an injured gymnast who must defend her boyfriend's house from a gang of armed robbers in upcoming thriller, Tiger House, alongside Ed Skrein and Dougray Scott.

Jack O'Connell stars as Calisto in upcoming action drama, 300: Rise of an Empire, alongside Eva Green, Sullivan Stapleton, Lena Headey and Rodrigo Santoro. It is set to be released in March, 2014.

O'Connell has also finished filming war drama, 71, about a young and disorientated British soldier who is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the deadly streets of Belfast in 1971, alongside Sean Harris and Paul Anderson. He is currently filming Unbroken, which chronicles the life of Olympic runner, Louis Zamperini (O'Connell), who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during WW2, alongside Garrett Hedland, Domhnal Gleeson and Jai Courtney.

Luke Pasqualino will star as D'artagnan in upcoming television drama, The Musketeers, which gives a contemporary take on the classic story about a group of highly trained soldiers and bodyguards assigned to protect King and country in 17th century Paris, alongside Alexandra Dowling, Tom Burke, Peter Capaldi, Ryan Gage, Howard Charles and Santiago Cabrera. It will be broadcast on BBC1 in Jan, 2014.

Pasqualino has also been cast in BBC2 comedy horror series, Inside No. 9, which will present a different narrative featuring different actors each episode (including Gemma Arterton, Tamsin Greig and Anna Chancellor), except for writers/actors Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton.

Lily Loveless has finished filming independent drama Fear of Water, which follows two teenage girls, Eleanor (Chloe Partridge) and Alexia (Loveless) - with parallel lives but coming from different socio-economic backgrounds - who meet one summer to discover friendship and a sexual awakening. It is expected to be released in 2014, though there is no official date yet. However, Loveless has already been awarded Monaco International Film Festival's Best Newcomer Award for her performance in the film.

Loveless was cast, along with Kathryn Prescott, as one of the two leads in Ana Marie Ramos' Triptych, but it seems unlikely that this film will ever happen...

Kathryn Prescott has been cast as the lead, Carter Stevens, in upcoming MTV drama pilot, Finding Carter, about a teenager who finds out she was abducted as a toddler and returns to her biological family, alongside Anna Jacoby-Heron, Zac Pullam and Nolan Sotillo. Finding Carter is described as a coming-of-age drama, and Prescott's Carter as a confident and mischievous girl who has no problem being the center of attention or life of the party. More info here.

Dakota Blue Richards will star as Eloise Ashton in upcoming drama, The Fold, about Anglican priest Rebecca Ashton (Catherine McCormack) who tries to replace her deceased daughter with another girl. To be released in March, 2014 (UK).

Richards has also finished filming sci-fi thriller, The Quiet Hour, about a remote part of rural, post-apocalyptic England, occupied by unseen alien invaders, in which a feisty teenage girl (Richards) sets out in a desperate attempt to fight back a group of bandits and defend her parents' farm, their remaining livestock, and the solar panels that are the key to keeping them safe from extraterrestrials.

Alex Arnold has finished filming thriller, Moths, alongside Conner McKenzy and Robert Vowles, and western, The Salvation ("In 1870s America, a peaceful American settler kills his family's murderer which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader. His cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone"), which stars Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as its leads. It is expected to be released in October, 2014.

Freya Mavor is currently starring in French comedy series Castings.

Channel 4 announced earlier on this year that Mavor will star as one of the four leads in upcoming historical drama, New Worlds, about a group of young idealists in the Restoration period, alongside Jamie Dornan, Alice Englert and Joe Dempsie.

Sean Teale will appear as Franco in the upcoming second series of ITV drama, Mr. Selfridge, to air in 2014. (Unsure whether he's a regular or not - different sources say different things.)

(Trailer features Sean.)

Jessica Sula has finished filming Brixton-set drama, Honeytrap, which tells the story of fifteen-year-old Layla (Sula), who gets sucked into gang activity and sets up the boy who's in love with her to be killed. (Alongside Lucien Laviscount).

Sebastian De Souza will star as Rafa in crime comedy, Plastic, about two young men who run a credit card fraud scheme, alongside Alfie Allen, Will Poulter, Emma Rigby and Ed Speelers. It is expected to be released in April, 2014 (UK).

De Souza has also finished filming Kids In Love, a film about a group of affluent young Londoners whose lives center around drugs and parties, alongside Cara Delevingne, Alma Jodorowsky and Will Poulter. Expected to be released in August, 2014 (UK).

Did anyone catch any of the cast's recently released projects? If so, what did you think? I saw Will in About Time, in which he plays a secondary character (not just a bit part as I had thought), which was very good and got great reviews, as well as Freya in Sunshine on Leith - probably not everyone's kind of film but I loved it and fell in love with Freya all over again. The film also got pretty good reviews.

Also, what kind of roles would you like to see everyone in in the future? Are there any particular roles or future adaptations you'd love to see them in?
